Smash Cast I Heard Your Voice In A Dream

[Jesse:]

I thought I was hopeless, I thought I was broken

I struggled to laugh when the whole room was joking


I waited in the cold, but the door wouldn’t open ’til I

‘Til I heard your voice in a dream


And nothing comes easy when everyone’s rushing

The signal’s got speed but there’s no real connection

I tried reaching out but it was just my reflection ’til I


‘Til I heard your voice in a dream


So sing to me and I will forgive you

For taking my heart in the suitcase you packed

Sing to me like the lights didn’t blind you

Like you blinded me when I heard your voice in a dream


And I could have loved you but you had the hunger

For life in the lights, so when they called your number

I couldn’t compete with the spell you were under

Still I, I hear your voice in my dreams

So sing to me and I will forgive you

For taking my heart in the suitcase you packed

Sing to me like the lights didn’t blind you

Like you blinded me when I heard your voice in a dream


[Amanda:]

Oooooh

Oooooh

Oooooh

[Jesse:]

I thought I could love you but you had the hunger


[Amanda:]

Oooooh


[Jesse:]

Oh, and nothing comes easy when everyone’s rushing


[Amanda:]

Oooooh


[Jesse:]

I thought I could love you, I thought I could love you

Smash Cast Smash!

You ask me, how far will I go

You ask me what I wouldn’t do

For the sight of my name

As it fills every frame

Yes, I want to be more than a flash

I ask you, what lies should I tell

I tell you I’m willing to learn

So enroll me in school

In your kidney-shaped pool

In a two-piece I make Quite a splash

‘Cause I wanna be a smash

Yes, I wanna be a hit and run

Till I’ve won every heart

Be a queen to each king Or mechanic

Plus you, Mr. Zanuck

But first, mister

You have to give me the part

I know all the tricks of the trade

I’ve even invented a few

Now your interest is mounting

And soon we’ll be counting

The lights and the nights

And the cash

‘Cause I’m gonna be a Smash!

Yes, I’m gonna be a smash

Won’t you help me be a…

Smash!

Smash Cast Public Relations

[Reporters]

Here she is!

Miss Marilyn Monroe

Will she have the answers

That our readers want to know?

From India and Paris

And from just across the pond

We have so many questions

For America’s smart dumb blonde

[Marilyn]

Here I am

I dropped in from the sky

For Look and Life and all the boys

From Peek and U.P.I

[Reporters] Please let us peek behind closed doors

Where no one is allowed!

[Marilyn] Well I’m pretty good in private

But the truth is, I’m better in a crowd

I relate to men of so many nations

But public relations

Are my favorite kind

[Reporters] You’re the story that we’re glad we’re assigned

Dealing with one man

Can lead to frustrations

But public relations

I have never declined

[Reporters] Cause we’re the guys who’ll never leave ya behind

A bunch of men

With pad and pen

Is a way to have some fun

But ladies, listen to me

Confidentially?

Nothing ever beats a one on one

Still, you come to me

For sex in quotations

So I’ll use public relations

To give you a piece of my mind

[Reporters]

Gimme, gimme

A piece of your mind

Cause the answer to a question

Is the way you’re defined, like

[Spoken]

[Reporter:] What do you sleep in?

[Marilyn:] Well I adore Chanel No. 5 and not much more

[Reporter:] Any advice for a girl in the city?

[Marilyn:] If you’re two-faced, at least make one of them pretty

[Reporter:] The studio says, “lateness is your favorite crime”

[Marilyn:] True, I’ve been on a calendar, but never on time

[Reporter:] When you posed nude, your inhibitions were gone?

[Marilyn:] Well, that’s not quite true, I kept the radio on!

[Sung]

Yes, to chase the blues

Boys, I chase the newsboys!

Fame has plenty of perks

When your life’s a mess

Call the foreign press

Be they Indian, Parisian, British

German, or Turks

I am glad you crave

My best conjugations

Yes, public relations

Is my favorite sound

Cause when I’m alone

I can pick up the phone

Cause the forth estate

Is always around!

Yes, it’s just good public relations!

Smash Cast A Thousand And One Nights

[Dev:]

Darling, the hands of time must always point ahead, yesterday’s passed

Today has come and gone, the secret of tomorrow’s coming fast

Which bedtime story shall I sing to you when we turn out the lights?

One of eternity or one of just a thousand and one nights?

Is there a mystic with the answers from above?

Is there a goddess with the hourglass of love?

So many questions swirling all around my heart

Is this the end or just the start?

Will I shower you with riches every year the night we met?

Will you take my heart or melt it likes it’s gold?

Will our love go on forever or is this all that we get?

Is tonight the last or does the future hold

A lifetime of delights

Or just a thousand and one nights?

[Karen:]

Darling, you seem to think that I’m the only who has to choose

That you are in control and get to set the rules of win or lose

The bedtime story that I’ll sing to you when we turn out the lights

May bring eternity or maybe just a thousand and one nights

There is no mystic with the answers from above

You know the secrets for the way to keep my love

There are a thousand and more ways to win my heart

The list is long but for a start

You can shower me with riches every year the night we met

I may take your heart and melt it like it’s gold

Play in someone’s perfumed garden and this night’s the last you’ll get

Play your cards right and your future just might hold

A lifetime of delights

Or just a thousand and one nights

Just a thousand and one nights

[Karen:]

The man who never chooses finds himself without a choice

[Dev:]

The lucky ones appear to have it all

[Karen:]

The tiger’s just a kitten when his tamer finds her voice

[Dev:]

I surely will obey you when you call

[Ensemble:]

Then will you shower me with riches every year the night we met?

Will you take my heart and melt it likes it’s gold?

Will our love go on forever or is this all that we get?

Is tonight the last or does the future hold

A lifetime of delights

Or just a thousand and one nights

Just a thousand and one nights

Smash Cast Broadway, Here I Come!

I’m high above the city

I’m standing on the ledge

The view from here is pretty

And I step off the edge

And now I’m fallin’, baby

Through the sky, through the sky

And I’m fallin’, baby through the sky

It’s my callin’, baby

Don’t you cry, don’t you cry

And I’m fallin’ down through the sky

Toward the street that I’m from

Oh, Broadway, here I come

Broadway, here I come

The pressure it increases

The closer that I get

I could almost go to pieces

But I’m not quite there yet

See, I’ve been bravin’ crazy weather

Drownin’ out my cries

I pull myself together

I’m focused on the prize

I’m fallin’, baby

Through the sky, through the sky

I’m fallin’, baby through the sky

It’s my callin’, baby

Don’t you cry, don’t you cry

‘Cause I’m fallin’ down through the sky

And it’s a tune you can hum

Oh, Broadway here I come

Mmmmmmmm

Will I remain the same

Or will I change a little bit?

Will I feel broken or totally complete?

Will I retain my name when I’m the biggest, hugest hit?

Or will I blend in with the rest of the street

The people all are pointing

I bet they’d never guess

That the saint that they’re anointing

Is frightened of the mess

But even though I fear it

I’m playin’ all my cards…

Baby, you are gonna hear it

When I give them my regards

I’m fallin’ baby

Through the sky, through the sky

Now I’m fallin’, baby through the sky

It’s my callin’, baby

Don’t you cry, don’t you cry

And I’m fallin’ down through the sky

And I refuse to go numb

Oh, Broadway here I come

Broadway, here I come

Broadway, here I come

Oh, Broadway, Broadway, here I come

Here I come!

And the last thing I hear

As the impact grows near

Is it a scream or a cheer?

Well, never mind, I’ll never find out

‘Cause Broadway I am here

Smash Cast Pretender

[Amanda:]

Your dirty kiss, you tried to pull me right in

Your little tricks, you’re used to winning

You play your part – dancer in the dark

Saying anything to try and steal away a heart

Now you got her, she’s lying up in your bed

Don’t seem to stop ya, you keep on calling

You’re out of line, waster of my time

I just want to know how you can fall asleep at night

Hey, baby, you’re just a pretender

I’m not crazy, should’ve known much better

Whatever you do, always twisting the truth

Well the table’s ’bout to turn back right back on you

You must be drunk, did you forget your way home?

I’m not the one who’s scared of being alone

Got me confused with someone who needs you

Might be the joker but I’m nobody’s fool

Hey, baby, you’re just a pretender

Don’t mistake me, you might think you’re clever boy

Whatever you do, always twisting the truth

Well the table’s ’bout to turn back right back on you

Take all your life on somebody else

I got more strength, got more pride in myself

So, what now, who you gonna mess around?

I can tell you right now – ain’t gonna be me

Hey, baby, you’re just a pretender

I’m not crazy, should’ve known much better

Whatever you do, always twisting the truth

Well the table’s ’bout to turn back right back on you

Smash Cast Caught In The Storm

You can push me away

I can take it

I can make you a promise

and break it

We know the way it goes by now

Running off just to see

if I chase you

I pretend I know how to replace you

Still we get tangled up somehow

Hear it thunder

And I wonder

How long can I hang on

I’m caught in the storm

I’m caught in the rain

I’m caught in the rush that hides this pain

I’m ready to drown

But it’s coming down

But I feel so alive

Just let me go

Just walk away

If you love someone you never let them stay

I’m Caught in the storm

As the bars on The Bowery are closing

You arrive at the door standing frozen

You say you thought you’d find me here

Tell me how I begin to forget you

When you keep coming back and I let you

Love me until you disappear

I’m caught in the storm

I’m caught in the rain

I’m caught in the rush that hides this pain

I’m ready to drown

But it’s coming down

But I feel so alive

Just let me go

Just walk away

If you love someone

You never let them stay

Caught in the storm

Let me wash away

You can find me after the flood

Let me wash away

Caught in the storm

Caught in the rain

Caught in the rush that hides this pain

If you love someone

You find a way to stay

Caught in the storm

Hmmm

Smash Cast They Just Keep Moving The Line

The field was bright with clover

I saw the finish sign

I started as a rover

And then victory was mine

I thought the race was over

But they just keep moving the line

They cheered at my persistence

But prayed for my decline

The path of least resistance

Led to Hollywood and Vine

I tried to go the distance

But they just keep moving the line

I jumped all of the hurdles

To break out of the pack

I started on the outside

And then hit the inside track

I left the other fillies

Back at the starting gate

Was ready, on my mark, I got to set

To hurry up and wait

So talent and ambition

Won me a chance to shine

I aced the big audition

But it’s rainin’ on Cloud Nine

Can’t beat the competition

‘Cause they just keep moving the line

I handled every corner

Each bump along the track

And when I saw the ribbon, well

There was no turning back

I won the photo finish

I posed for all the men

But before I got my trophy

Well, the race began again

So I made friends with rejection

I’ve straightened up my spine!

I’ll change each imperfection

Till it’s time to drink the wine!

I’d toast to resurrection

But they just keep moving the line!

Please give me some direction,

‘Cause they just keep moving the line!
